Lummi Island Sea Glass

Some of my earliest memories are of lazy afternoons spent on Pacific Northwest beaches with my maternal grandmother looking for agates. While I didn’t inherit her talent for spotting agates, I learned that I could spy sea glass pretty well. After many years finding such treasures from the sea on Alaskan beachesoften remnants of old canneries and gold minesimagine my delight to learn that sea glass can be found on Lummi Island beaches.

Lummi Island Sea Glass can usually be found at Lummi Island Artists’ Studio Tours, Lummi Island Saturday Markets, and the Holiday Bazaar, and year-round at Sisters’ Mercantile in the Islander Store.  I also gratefully accept orders/inquiries by email, phone, or on Facebook and Etsy.

I carefully hand collect the glassremoving what to some is “marine debris” from our island beachesand carefully drilling these lovely sea gems, turn them into one-of-a-kind wine charms and earrings. I also construct sea glass candles through which candle glow enriches and magnifies the lovely colors of the glass.

I hope that the you enjoy these little treasures from the sea as much as I enjoy creating them!
